07:58 AM ET 09.20 | Tony Romo may find more critics as the losses mount. The numbers indicate that Romo had a pretty good day against Chicago: 34-of-51 passing for 374 yards and a touchdown, with both interceptions on tipped balls. ... Here's the deal: He doesn't always have to be great. Most of the time, he just has to set his feet and give his receivers a chance to make a play. Romo doesn't always do that. Bill Parcells used to say that his talented, excitable young quarterback sometimes pulled the trigger too fast. Someone's saying it still. "Sometimes the quarterback can throw it too quickly," Martellus Bennett said. "It is the little things like that make the difference."

Not necessarily....but the idiot who decided to have him throw the ball 51 times sure is. Wade Phillips should be fired if they lose to Houston....talk about meltdown in little D...

Thats not so much Wade Phillips as it is Jason Garrett. Both need to be fired.

Yeah, this was key in defeating them yesterday. Plus Cutler through no interceptions and rebounded nicely after taking an early beating.

Good win upchuck.

Yes - necessarily.

They play like they practice - and that is a direct indictment of the head coach. There is no intensity... no immediacy... and no accountability.

This team sucks - and they are going to get their heads handed to them next Sunday. If you think those Houston fans loved beating the Cowboys in a meaningless pre-season game, just wait.

51 passing plays...only 20 rushing plays.

September 20, 2010  08:15 AM ET

i know Romo is the scapegoat, but he has nothing to do with penalties and lack of defensive impact from the secondary...DB's are getting exposed

September 20, 2010  08:15 AM ET

He playing more like "The Situation" than "the issue".

Romo was not very accurate yesterday but the big problem is [hello..once again], the play calling.

There is a reason why the Cowboys training camp has been named "Camp Cupcake" since Wade has been on the scene.

Romo's problem (and the Cowboys as a whole) is a lack of leadership. I can't think of one player that can rally the troops. Tony's is soooooooooooo laid back. This would be ok if he had a Michael Irving type that could pull people together. There has to be a player that steps up . I think Miles Austin is the guy. He should have the locker room's respect the way he basically worked his way up through the ranks tp become a type flight reciever. The coaches don't drop passes, fumble the ball, miss tackles.

It's IRVIN!!!

I thought Keith Brooking was THE GUY. They need to hold a serious players meeting first thing Tuesday. I see 5-11 in their immediate future. Ahhh..the Dave Campo days are here again!

Austin is much too busy trying to plan out all the things he plans to do to Kim Kardashian for the evening.
